Registering your payment cards before travelling overseas

QNB is committed to ensuring the highest quality of service for our customers and this includes supporting our clients when they use their payment cards whether in Qatar or overseas. Due to a global increase in fraudulent activity on payment cards we have been required to increase our level of protection for our cardholders. We are therefore requesting your support by asking, that if you are travelling abroad after 1st July 2014, that you register those payment cards that you are taking with you (Debit and/or Credit). This process of registering your cards needs to be repeated each time you subsequently travel thereafter if the activation has expired.
How to register?
From Qatar, SMS the word “TRV” from your registered mobile number to 92777. You will receive confirmation that your debit and credit cards have been registered.
If you are currently travelling and your cards haven’t been registered, please register through internet banking or contact the Customer Call Centre on +974 4440 7777.
